Set Up Network
7
The serial server is set at the factory to receive an IP assign-
ment from a DHCP server. If a DHCP server is not available
on your network, it will default to 169.254.102.39.
If this address does not work with your PC, change your
network settings to:
IP Address = 169.254.102.1
Subnet Mask = 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway = 169.254.102.100
If you need to use different settings, refer to Chapter 4 of the
User Manual for instructions.
Set Up Serial Port Parameters
8
1. Click Port 1 Serial to open the Serial Port Parameters page.
Select the type of serial connection between the serial server
and the serial device (RS-232, RS-422, RS-485 2-wire, or
RS-485 4-wire).
2. Select the Baud Rate, Data Bits, Stop Bits, Parity and Flow
Control needed to communicate with the serial device.
3. If your serial server is 2 port, select the next port in the de-
scription box, then repeat the previous steps.
4. Click Next.

1. Click Port 1 Network to open the Port Network Parameters
page.
2. Select the type of network protocol you want to use: TCP,
UDP, VCOM or Paired Mode.
3. If you select TCP, select whether the serial server will operate
as a Client or Server, then configure the required IP address,
port numbers and other related parameters.
4. If you select UDP, configure the IP addresses, ports and other
related parameters for the devices you want to receive from
and send to.
5. If you want the serial server to act as a virtual communications
port for a computer, select VCOM. This allows your computer
to connect to a serial device on the network as if it were con-
nected to a physical COM port.
6. If you want the serial server to operate in Paired mode with
another serial server, select Paired, then configure it as a
client or server and set up the IP address, port numbers and
other related parameters (similar to setting up TCP).
Set Up Advanced Parameters
10
1. If you want to set up Advanced parameters, click Advanced on
the Port Network Parameters page.
2. If necessary for your application, select I want to control when
connections are forced closed, then set up the Network Watch-
dog and Serial Watchdog as required.”
3. If necessary for your application, select I want to control data

1. If you have completed the configuration, click Save to save the
configuration to the serial server.
2. To Logout, click the Logout button.
To Test & Verify Operation
12
1. Set up serial server as a TCP Server on serial port 1.
2. Set serial port to RS-232 on serial port 1.
3. Set to 9600 8-N-1 on serial port 1.
4. Loopback serial port 1 by connecting TD to RD.
5. Open a DOS window and type “telnet x.x.x.x yyyy” where
x.x.x.x is the IP address of the serial server and yyyy is the port
number of the serial port.
6. Type characters on the keyboard. The characters should ap-
pear in the window. If not, double check your settings.
